Fort Worth, TX     Fri, September 9, 2016

The Bilge Pumps took the name of the event "Taking the Stage" a but too literally as we pulled a surprise appearance and snatched the stage away from the locals, to the surprise of the audience that managed to peel themselves away from Homecoming football games. We made a grand attempt at recording an official music video for "Johnny Jump Up" as well, destroying expectations and eardrums all around the city.

Harvey the Corpsman tries to explain to the audience what's going on.

The band explains the life of a pirate during Pirating the Seas.

Sharkbait Simon the Scapegoat tries to avoid looking at John Crow the Cook during the show. Usually a good tactic.

When John Crow is that happy, you'd best check your legs for fresh signs of dry humping.

Harvey tries to dig around in Crow's pockets to find out what he's been imbibing to make himself so rambunctious.

The band gathers themselves up before launching into Bonnie Ship the Diamond.
